We always enjoy taking a look at the Maria Francesca jewelry collections, not only because of the fabulous pieces the label brings every year but also because of the story behind each line. Remember the edgy Veleno spring/summer 2012 lookbook? Well, this time around, the label brings a similarly edgy perspective but without sending a chill down fashionitas’ spines in the process.
The Maria Francesca Pepe jewelry collection for spring/summer 2013 is titled “Elemental” and, as you might guess, takes inspiration from the five elements: “Earth (solid), Water (liquid), Wind (gas), Fire (heat), Aether (quintessence)”. The desire to reflect timelessness beautifully merges with the season’s hottest trends as geometric precision and spectacular shapes become the focus of the new Maria Francesca Pepe 2013 jewelry collection.
Avant-garde pieces with a pronounced rock chic vibe dominate the new collection in which the desire to stand out is easily met. Whether we’re talking bracelets, earrings or necklaces, the new line abounds in interesting alternatives with a strong eclectic vibe. Handmade in Italy, most of the jewelry are made from silver and brass for the most part. Still, the designer uses one special stone which beautifully reflects the theme of the new line, Lapis Lazuli or “the stone of truth”, as it is also known.
The new Maria Francesca Pepe jewelry for 2013 brings plenty of spectacular accents in the spotlight which have a strong edgy vibe which immediately shine through in the lenses of Saga Sig, however there’s also a more romantic vibe which can be spotted at a closer look. Heart shaped details are perhaps the most easily recognizable element which highlights this detail. The Maria Francesca Pepe jewelry collection revolves around a few well defined tones: vintage silver, gold and rose gold or rhodium. Those with nickel allergy who happen to like some of the new Maria Francesca Pepe offerings can rest assured as all the offerings are nickel free and hypoallergenic.
